Mastering Upwork Like a Boss: Charge High Rates, Land Great Clients, and Become a Top Rated Freelancer

I started experimenting with Upwork while I was still working full-time at Cisco. For months I researched all the strategies, read all the success and horror stories, and learned enough to eventually make Upwork my main source of income within about 6 months.

What I have to offer you is the result of experimentation and failure.

After testing several different tactics, I stumbled onto a set of tips and insights that freelancers can use to land great gigs and high-paying clients on Upwork.

In this presentation I’ll cover:

  • The common mistakes freelancers make when branding/positioning themselves on Upwork.
  • How to avoid competing head-to-head with low-priced freelancers from third-world countries.
  • How to become Top Rated and leverage the designation for higher-paying, and longer-term gigs.
  • 3 easy ways to dramatically increase your interview and hiring rates.
